Nineteenth Century Ladies Note Card Set

Hi Dreamers,
I wanted to get a post in today and share a note card set I made with three nineteenth century ladies--All from Another Stamp Company.  I went with a monochromatic color scheme in browns and blues  and used a sketch from Crafting Musketeers (see sketch below).

All the cards were stamped with black dye ink.  I stamped on  Sahara Sand ( Stampin' Up) for  the brown cards.  The decorative paper is all from 7 Gypsies.  All the die cuts are from A Muse Studios.

Card #1

  • Tulle and silk satin fabric were tied in a bow on this card

Card #2

  • I used Brown Lace and Brown Organza for the fibers

Card #3

  • Blue Tulle and and Black Satin Ribbon were used on the blue card

A few fun Challenges for my 19th Century Ladies:
